    From the time of its birth, the boomer generation has significantly and uniquely changed our world. In 2014, the last boomer turns 50. American Masters: The Boomer List is a comprehensive look at 19 iconic boomers–one born each year of the baby boom from 1946-1964, including Samuel L. Jackson, Billy Joel, Tommy Hilfiger, Amy Tan, Maria Shriver, Kim Cattrall, Erin Brockovich, Rosie O’Donnell, David LaChapelle and John Leguizamo. TV viewers, museum visitors and readers will gain insight into the boomer generation through intimate interviews and large-scale portraits by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders (The Black List, The Latino List and The Out List) that focus on exceptional achievement, struggle and identity, telling the story of extraordinary Americans and the history they lived through and often created. Immediately following the premiere of American Masters: The Boomer List, American Masters will present an In Memoriam tribute broadcast of Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work (2010) on Tuesday, September 23, 10:30 p.m.-12 midnight on PBS (check local listings).

    Find out what the bones of King Richard III reveal about his fitness for battle. When a group of amateur historians set out to find the bones of Richard III under a parking lot in England, everyone thought they were mad. Until, a skeleton — hunchbacked and with an arrow in its spine — emerged. University of Leichester scientists ultimately confirmed the identity of the reviled king through DNA. A series of fascinating, new experiments are now underway, including startling new DNA matches, revelations about his fitness going into battle…and a lucky accident when scientists discover a War of the Roses re-enactor—with matching scoliosis — answering the question, could a king with such a deformed body fight ferociously in battle as the heroic accounts suggest?
